It took a while to get into this film. It's the story of an awkward, somewhat neurotic teenage girl who tries to navigate the deep pitfalls of adolescence as she nears the end of middle school. A protagonist who comes into her own, as does the film as a whole, is portrayed flawlessly here, very much true to life. We watch her efforts to fit in with other kids in her grade and those a tad older and the dynamic between her and her loving father. The most amusing part is how she confronts the intrigue and challenges of her ongoing (and perhaps first-ever) crush. As a grown man, I found a lot of truth in this film. My only real complaint would be a soundtrack that is excessively voluble and overheated. I realize it's meant to portray the roller-coaster of growing up at that age, but I found it more of a distraction. Otherwise, a wonderfully touching coming-of-age film. Recommended.

The Synopsis for Eighth Grade (2018) 720p
In his feature film directorial debut, comedian Bo Burnham deftly encapsulates the awkwardness, angst, self-loathing and reinvention that a teenage girl goes through on the cusp of high school. Given that the 27-year-old stand-up comic achieved fame as a teenager himself through YouTube by riffing on his insecurities, he is uniquely capable as the film's writer and director to tell the story of Kayla, an anxious girl navigating the final days of her eighth grade year, despite creating a protagonist w female instead of male. Like Burnham did more than a decade ago, 13-year-old Kayla turns to YouTube to express herself, where she makes advice blogs in which she pretends to have it all together. In reality, Kayla is sullen and silent around her single father and her peers at school, carrying out most of her interactions with her classmates on Instagram and Twitter. Her YouTube videos are a clever narrative tool that provide insight into her inner hopes and dreams, much like an ...

Deeply uneven film about growing up, but ultimately rings a chordReviewed byPotassiumManVote: 7/10
Disapointed.. You just hear that "ok, yeah, cool, gucci" o never watch this kind of bad film.. So sorry..
Although it may "relate" to being a 13 yo (pick any time in the past thousand years), this is a totally dated yawn. Its a tough period of life, no doubt, but that in itself cannot recommend this film. (My three is high.) All I can attribute to the raves is the reviewers' own hella year. The clueless dad is interesting only in his omissions: single moms, teenagers' privacy, *any discipline whatsoever, and why he left his daughter's teeth so twisted into high school. Fail. Dads win custody so rarely IRL, in fact, that the omission of any Why is radically unrealistic. Craft loses to lack of content and time-limitedness by trying to be *quite so hip. This film is outdated by December. WHEN will phones be banned in schools? JEEEZus
